Sometimes when I try to sign up for an newsletter on a website I get a Security Alert that says:

Your security settings do not allow you to send HTML forms

How can I change this or should I?

Hi jen147!

Go to START-->CONTROL PANEL-->INTERNET OPTIONS. Click on the SECURITY tab, then click the CUSTOM LEVEL button. The Security settings window should now be open, scroll down the list about 3/4 of the way until you find the entry entitled Submit nonencrypted form data. Make sure this is set to PROMPT or ENABLED, whichever you prefer, but I would choose PROMPT to be on the save side.

Look at the attached picture to see what I'm talking about.

Thanks for the reply Fenor. I checked that security setting and it was already on enabled. I did change it to prompt though. Anyway, I went back to the website that I was at earlier and tried again and still got the same alert. Any other ideas?

Who is your Internet provider?

Also, check and see if you have any security software installed like NIS or Mcafee because they can really hose your system and not let you do much of anything you normally would be able to do without them.

My service provider is through my telephone company. Yes I do have NIS, anything in there that I can change? I guess my heart won't be broken if I can't change it, just irks me a little, I guess.

I would recommend that you uninstall norton IS because it quite frankly sucks. Hoses your system more then it helps. Makes you a prisoner of your own computer. After you uninstall it, you can install AVG, which is a very good free antivirus program.

I've read lots of places that NIS is a resource hog, besides the current problem I'm dealing with, what are it's other negatives?

I just bought it in June, it would probably aggravate me more to not keep it until it expires at least. But I did book mark AVG's site so that I can take advantage of that when NIS expires.

Thanks for all your help!!
